    Was that at every register, or select ones? I know in the self check at Walmart, a number of those registers do not accept cash - but some do.

    There’s a national shortage in change. My FIL owns a business and has been driving around trying to find change for the store.

    Just thinking out loud, I would assume it’s a lesser risk of contracting the CV-19 if debit, credit or EBT cards are used. Think about it, Cash is handled by who knows who and would provide a substantially higher risk of spreading than someone’s personal card. The cashier doesn’t have to touch it, only the owner.

    Cash is and will always be King.

    I’m 98% cash, buying and selling. I was at the beer store today, total came to $27 and change. I handed the lady a $20, and 2 $5’s. She told me she had no change and if I wanted to pay cash I needed exact change or have them keep the change. I took a $5 back and told her I would keep the change.

    Sure getting easy to repost stuff you get and never check it out. Folks are becoming either blind sheep followers (like the Chancellor of Oxford post) or too lazy to do any research (like this one).

    Mr. C. corrected me on this one, some time back.

    Is it legal for a business in the United States to refuse cash as a form of payment?

    Section 31 U.S.C. 5103, entitled "Legal tender," states: "United States coins and currency [including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks] are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues."
    This statute means that all United States money as identified above is a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor. There is, however, no Federal statute mandating that a private business, a person, or an organization must accept currency or coins as payment for goods or services. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether to accept cash unless there is a state law which says otherwise.

    Do I have to trade in my old-design notes when a new one begins circulating?

    Maybe I'll be proven wrong but while there is a shortage of rolled coin available at this time (from the Fed or secondary sources), i do not in any shape form or fashion believe it to be a conspiracy theory to rid our nation of coin.

    2 big reasons for the shortage. 1. The fed facilities where they roll coin have been shut down on and off for covid. 2. Banks having their doors shut for so long has lead to a shortage of coin being brought in in bulk to be deposited. This disrupts the cycle enough to cause major backlogs. Contrary to popular belief, what we get is 99% recycled and 1% new coins.

    A third reason would be panic hoarding much like the TP situation. Not sure how much that contributes but I can verify that it did take place.

    JR, don’t bring any sensible solutions or reasons to the table please. It will upset their apple cart.

    Sorry, my apologies. I just miss common sense and resonability so much.

    No kidding! I think covid-19 was/is most detrimental to common sense. It’s pretty sad.

    I agree 100% on not taking cash or check.
    I seen today where apple wonts to get us all in to using there app and you will have your pass port-drivers lic.- bank acc. everything they can stick on there where we can't have any chance to keep anything private.

    I think they wont to do away with cash for sure. Even if you hade some you can't hide it --because they wont take it.
